Some may complain..others will improvise

The run tonight was going to be perfect. Jaimie was free to run. The weather was PERFECT all day. Three miles was the simple goal.  One mile in. The storm clouds roll in.  The drops fall.  They fall harder. We laughed, took some pictures (yes since blogging, I have been Nerdo with a camera) and finished our run despite the rain. We were thankful we started when it was sunny.  We probably would have never taken the first step if it were storming, which means we wouldn't have had that great talk was a much-needed one too! 

And it's here!

After the run, I was starving and excited to get home and make a nice supper (yes I call it supper, not dinner. In my book, "dinner" means "supper where you have to dress up"). 

Let me preface supper real quick.  My refigerator may not be stocked at all times (hardly ever), but if nothing else, I am guaranteed to have spaghetti sauce in that fridge.  And if it's not in the fridge, there is a spare jar in the cabinet. Guaranteed. period. exclamation point. Spaghetti is one of my favorites, because it's so EASY, hence why I stock up every time I go to Aldis. 

Well, don't you just hate when you start cooking part of the meal, run to get that special ingredient and then realize it is nowhere to be found? Well, that happened to me tonight.  No spaghetti sauce. Rats! And the noodles were half done.  What to do, what to do? I could make butter I dug around. Thank goodness for 6-month-old past purchases!  In my pantry I found diced tomatoes...hmmm.  I also had chopped onions left over from pizza night....and...the chef hat goes on.  I started cooking the tomatoes, added the onion, some garlic, italian seasoning, hot sauce and basil...

...completed it with parm cheese.....and Walaaah!
I'm going to toot my own horn a little bit, since you can't taste this for yourself -  man it was GOOD!
Cooking off the cuff and impressing myself once again.

"Beware of those who stand aloof
And greet each venture with reproof
The world would stop if things were run
By men who say, "It can't be done."

now...on to this mini marathon in 5 days.... :(


  1. Your supper looks so yummy! Love spaghetti too, it's tried and true but so darn good!

  2. your spaghetti looks delicious! we always have the ingredients on hand at the apartment! like you said, its so tasty and easy!

  3. Ooh a mini marathon, you go girl!

    I live in Houston, but am an Australian native. Back home we say supper too, but supper there means a late dinner. Kind of like a 4th meal. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper.

    That looks delish. Perfect for supper ;) !!

  4. You supper last night looks very similar to what our's looked like. You know what they say, great minds think alike. Not sure if anyone famous said that but atleast my dad always did:)
